On the contrary! And to show you just how popular braces-wearing adults are, it’s quiz time.
Q1: What percentage of adults are now filling the seats in orthodontists’ offices across the country and in Calgary? A1: If you said 25%, you are correct. That means 1/4 of the orthodontic patients are adults just like yourself.
Q2: Who is more likely to be in that group – men or women? A1: Of the high number of adults choosing ortodontic treatment, men make up approximately 30% of these patients while women are still in the majority.
Remember: although childhood is the ideal time to make changes in the positioning of the teeth, more adults are opting for orthodontic treatment and coming away with excellent results. So, it is always a good idea to check and see if your bones, teeth, and gums can benefit.
